Compassionate Soul Care Ministry (CSCM) is a Torah-based ministry offering Soul-Based services to other Torah-based Believers. CSCM are Sabbath-Keepers per the 4th Commandment, and Yahuah’s set aside Feasts Days (Moedim). We are not Sunday worshippers, nor do we honor secular holidays such as Christmas, Easter, or Halloween. We do not endorse these things as we provide our counseling services.
The spiritual foundation of CSCM is built upon Isaiah 61:1, “The Spirit of Yah is upon me; because He has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the poor; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom to the captive souls, and the opening of the prison (stronghold) to them that are bound.” Prophesied by Isaiah, Yahusha proclaimed Himself as the one sent by His Father seen in Luke 4:18-19, 21, …this day is the Scripture fulfilled in your ears.”
The verses of Isaiah and Luke represent the fallen nature of humanity. Yahusha worked from the soul of man to change old sinful ideas, beliefs, feelings, habits of choice, and distortions of reality and truth. For example, those poor in spirit bring such things as depression and grief to the counseling session. Open doors created by emotions such as hurt, pain, anger, guilt, fear, grief, is opportunity for Satan to enter with his influences of sin. CSCM understands this.
We understand that, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). Scripture gives what is needed to begin the healing process.
It starts with belief in Yahuah and His Son Yahusha haMaschiach. “ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Believing in Him means abiding in Him. We help our clients understand what it means to abide in Yahusha as the only source for restoration. Yahusha Himself spoke, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you (John 15:7). People come to CSCM in brokenness and despair our belief is through these truths we can lead them to rebuild their lives into spiritual wholeness.
This ministry serves within the biblical worldview that men and women are fallen creatures whose only salvation is found in Yah. Sin has consequences. Often these consequences burden the soul and weaken the spirit. No sin or consequence of sin has fallen upon the children of Yah that He cannot answer a cry for renewal. This ministry recognizes that sin enters internally as a person is drawn to it, or externally as it is inflicted upon them. Meaning there is sin an individual commits willfully in full awareness and there is a sin committed against the individual.
There is an environmental sin where others, not directly involved find themselves becoming victims or recipients of sin, such as being raised in abusive homes or homes where one or more caregivers have addiction disorders, generational curses, and the like. How the individual understands and reacts to their circumstance is where problems surface.
Sin and circumstance create a multitude of psychological, social, and mental health conditions. For instance, how does a grieving widower handle the death of his spouse who drank herself to death? These create deep wounds of the soul of which only Yah can heal.
Believers are often at crossroads with understanding the Bible and applying Torah principles to their daily walk in Torah. They often cannot apply, because they do not understand biblical principles that relate to their individual problem. As such many seek Torah-based counselors who are able to walk with them on a personal soul level. This is a journey many pastors do not have the needed time to give as they work tirelessly to serve their flock or just may not have the training or expertise to fill this type of role. Soul Care counselors fill this gap.
The fulfillment and execution of Scripture come through the disciples, and apostles as teachers, guides, and servants. What applied since Yahusha walked this earth applies in this, our 21st century. Paul taught that we are helpers one to another to encourage one another and build each other up as found in 1 Thessalonians 5:11. Soul care counseling applies these principles as our philosophical steppingstones.
Our Core Beliefs: How we View Clients
These Scriptures highlight how we view and relate to our clients.
When the client places themselves under our care we will accept them as we are biblically instructed by Romans 14:1, “As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.
James taught us to pray for each other (James. 5:16). We pray with and for our clients.
We are our Brother’s Keeper. As such we speak the truth in love as we encourage our clients to be truthful unto themselves for it is by the truth that we are set free. Yah’s Word is truth, and His Word resides in the flesh as Yahusha, the Word of Yah. Ephesians 4:15-16: But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Messiah.
1 Peter 4:9
Peter taught us to offer hospitality to one another (1 Peter 4:9). We have high regard for creating a safe haven for our clients and through Video Communication we still seek to create a comfortable environment.
We do not pass judgment or put a stumbling block in our client’s progression (Romans. 14:13).
2 Corinthians 1:4
CSCM seeks to help the client understand the comfort Yah brings. We recognize and understand our own sinful nature, faults, and fragileness. We are in relationship with Yah as we seek Him for comfort. In doing so we seek to do likewise for others. 2 Corinthians 1:4 informs: “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort Yah has given us.”
CSCM values the individual as a child of Yah therefore we place them above ourselves as a person with needs that are greater than ourselves. As Apostle Paul taught, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit but in humility count others more significant than yourselves (Philippians 2:3).
We are devoted to the client in love as we honor where they are when they render themselves to our care (Roman. 12:10).
We acknowledge the Ruach haQodesh in our lives as we create safe havens for our clients providing a friendly, peaceful, relaxed atmosphere allowing for freedom of disclosure and growth. We strive to be sensitive to the leading of the Ruach haQodesh as the rod and staff of Yahusha. The truth of the promises of Yah is the anchor for the soul (Hebrews 6:19); it exists both implicitly and explicitly in the counseling relationship as we honor Yahusha as the forerunner and shepherd of our souls.
Above all CSCM wants to instill:
"By your patience possess your souls" (Luke 21:19).
Finally, with names such as Yah, Yahweh, Yahuah, Yahovah, Yahuwah, Elohim, Hashem, and the like CSCM adopts the name Yah to identify the Most High Elohim, and His Son, Yahusha, or Yahusha haMaschiach.
